If you’d like to get a solid foundation at the start of your first leadership role with a group of like-minded peers and a team coach, continue reading!

Because NOW is the time to set up your leadership groundwork appropriately…

Does this sound familiar?

“I feel determined and have high expectations of myself to get “the leadership thing” right, but don’t know where to start?”

“I am aware that being a leader requires me to move from being an achiever in one area of expertise to being a role model and generalist – and I don’t know how I can really work on this mindset change?”

“I feel challenged as I’ve been a team member before and am now going to be the boss of my former colleagues who are also more experienced than me!”

“I feel accountable for myself when it comes to my development as a leader. My organisation has a leadership training where I get a slot, but only much later. I will, however, take over my team in the next two months and need practical support NOW!”

If one or more of the challenges above fits your situation and you want to do something about it, you are in the right place!

Imagine…

You feel more self-confident and are ready to master the challenge of effectively leading a team for the first time

You concretely develop your practical skills in the area of leadership and team development – e.g. you handle the first contact with your team members easily

You know what motivates your team members and know how you can positively impact your team’s culture

You don’t feel alone in the challenge anymore as you are strongly supported by a network of other first-time leader peers with similar challenges

Meet your coach

Katrin Grunwald, a consultant for team and organisational development.

Having worked many years in the area of leadership development in large multinational corporations across different countries in Europe, I have seen quite a few teams succeed, but also ones which have failed. One thing that I always noticed was the large impact the leader’s behaviour had on the team’s success – both positively and negatively.

I believe that it’s essential to invest in leadership skills from the beginning and I would like to support you during the transition phase!

My leadership experience is based on working closely with more than 60 team leaders across different countries and companies in team development processes and 1:1 coaching. In addition, I have served as a leader myself for several project teams and employee networks during my corporate career, as well as a volunteer in civil society organisations. I’m looking forward to working with you!

Additional learning experiences and benefits

– A programme which starts several times a year – offering you the right support at the right time when you need it

– A fully digital learning experience (via the tools Zoom and Slack), resulting in there being no travel costs and no special equipment needed, but still a high-quality modern way of learning offered

– Individual modules will each include: 

  • a hand-out giving you checklists, relevant articles, etc. 
  • homework to try out skills learned in the online programme in the real world

– The opportunity to develop your own coaching skills in peer coaching techniques

– To be part of a confidential atmosphere, where non-disclosure agreements are signed, enabling you to share comfortably about your individual situation

– The chance to enlarge your network of international leaders from an interesting variety of organisations, where you can support each other as sparring partners during the video calls as well as in between on Slack – and maybe even beyond in a face to face meeting!?

What do previous participants say about the

Leadership Foundation Programme?

“Having been on the other side, I didn’t want to be the kind of bad manager I had experienced in the past, that’s what motivated me to participate in the programme. My greatest learnings during the programme were more self-awareness and self-confidence. It was a great experience – you meet like-minded people who experience similar challenges and learn a lot about yourself as well!”
Marine Sully, Techstars
“In the beginning I was not sure whether a pure online course with video conferencing is the right choice? After all, leadership is about dealing with people face to face. However, it turned out that communication via video calling worked perfectly and did not have any noticeable disadvantages.

Katrin is a very open and cheerful person who obviously enjoys working with people, while always taking care of every participant. When she noticed that I had difficulties with certain topics, she took time after a session for a personal conversation to discuss possible ambiguities and doubts I had.”
Sebastian Bernwieser, Agrando
“I took over my first team one month before the programme started. The HR department of my company offered me to participate in it.

I was struggling to get into a new routine as I moved from being a team member to being the team leader of that same team. The leadership position required more meetings, new responsibilities and more stakeholders were involved. With the hands-on tips in the programme I was able to much quicker set a good routine for myself and for the interaction with my team. They see me less stressed and much more calm now!
